What do you think is the difference between why one person is successful and another person isn’t?
It has very little, or nothing to do with external circumstances.
I spent years trying to be successful before I became a Life Coach and I didn’t succeed. Not because I wasn’t privileged, or came from a disadvantaged background, or because I grew up in a socialist society – not at all.
I was educated, well brought up, had two Masters Degrees and had plenty of resources in terms of resilience, perseverance and intellect.
Yet I couldn’t find happiness or make ends meet.
My success started to grow the moment I started to learn about NLP. I all of a sudden had a blueprint for how the mind worked and many direct opportunities to change how my very own mind worked, and with each change that I made, my success grew.
I learnt about thoughts and how they had been a barrier and I learnt how I could change my thoughts. I changed my thoughts, and then rollerbladed to Brighton from London. With ease, keeping the pace of the fittest cyclists (gate crashed the Heart Foundation bike ride).
That is just a small example of how changing my thoughts changed my physical ability.
Changing my thoughts helped me create opportunities for prosperity, wealth and relationships.
I learnt about emotions. I learnt how my emotions were keeping me from succeeding, and from being happy and I learnt techniques to change my emotions. I changed my emotions and all of a sudden the world opened up to me.
I learnt how my metaphors were keeping me small. And I changed my metaphors around my identity and the next thing I knew I was in Africa, descending into the Rift Valley on a motorcycle. Then soon after that I was riding a motorcycle through the Himalayas.
I learnt about the pictures in my head and how they had been keeping me from having abundance and wealth and beauty and joy, and how they kept reminding me of my perceived lack of value, and I learnt how to change those pictures. And before long I was living in a beautiful environment.
I loved the ability to change myself and therefore change my life and having been given the keys to that change was a beautiful gift, and a gift that keeps on giving, as I empower others to make the same kind of changes.
All those changes led to one place – the ability for me to step into my true identity as a Life Coach, Healer and Teacher, and change lives by sharing powerful keys to change with my clients so that they could create beauty, wealth and abundance, happiness, joy, peace for themselves.
In the process the universe has rewarded me with abundance and wealth beyond anything I could have imagined and that feels like an embrace from the universe – a letting me know that I will always be looked after as long as I follow my path and share what I was put here on earth to share.
